I was here a few years ago and must have caught them on a rare bad night because the food was great and the service was top notch. The calamari appetizer was great and the special chicken dish was amazing.

Traveling to Pensacola and decided to stop here for a late lunch solely based on their high reviews. We arrived 15 minutes prior to lunch closing. Two diners plus the two of us. We were seated at the table right in front of the two bathrooms and requested any other table but the bathroom table. All other tables were of... More

A delightful little place with an interesting menu and very nice, attentive staff. Everyone in our party of six enjoyed what we ordered. Wish I had had room for dessert as they looked great too!

The food at Wild Olive is wonderful. Combinations have been well thought out and are fresh and tasty. Daily specials are very good and the regular menu is also excellent.

Best bet for a non fast food meal in Crestview. They don't serve wine due to some archaic blue law having to do with the proximity of a religious institution but you can BYO. Have been for lunch and dinner and enjoyed both.

Disappointed our special night was not up to the standard we've come to expect from Wild Olive, our favorite local restaurant. Large tables of loud customers made it impossible for us to talk at our own table which was trapped next to them. Two other smaller tables were a hair's breath away. Barely room to pass between tables. I assume... More

We were looking for breakfast and not willing to wait a Cracker Barrel. Searched online and found this place. So good, my husband had the Fancy Chicken biscuit, and I had the blueberry pancakes. The coffee was good and got and the service amazing! We will be back for dinner soon!

This was my second time to visit the Wild Olive. It was definitely as good as the first. The owner was very gracious when he greeted me and sat me at my table. My server was also very pleasant and efficient. I felt like I was well taken care of. The food was as delicious as I remembered. I had... More

The Wild Olive is the only place to dine in Crestview if you want a fine dining experience. I have been there many times in the year that we have lived in Crestview. The food is the best that we have eaten in this area including Destin! That's the only place I will take out of town guests. The menu... More

We went there for lunch. As locals we like to explore our restaurants but this one is always very busy because it is a small place. Food was excellent, service was ok. Shrimp and Grits were awesome. Cheesecake is marvelous. Next trip is dinner. Will reccomend as one of the best places to eat in Crestview.
